Bus accident cases involve causes of action against the bus driver, the bus company and potentially the school district the bus was driving for if that was a different entity from the bus company. The negligence of the bus driver will hold against the bus company because the company is responsible for the negligent acts of its employees. This legal theory is called respondeat superior or vicarious liability. The employer should be responsible for the negligence of the employee.
